OREA relies on strong leadership to drive change and achieve our mission of helping Ontario REALTORS® succeed in building stronger communities.

The OREA Board of Directors provides leadership and guides the strategic direction of the association. OREA is led by a volunteer 13-member board of directors, comprised of the following positions:

Officers (One-year terms)

  • President
  • President-Elect * (Ex-Officio Director)
  • Immediate Past-President (Ex-Officio Director)

ELECTED DIRECTORS (Rotating two-year terms)

  • Four Directors-at-Large
  • Five Provincial Directors
    • Western Ontario; Southern Ontario; Northeastern Ontario; Northern Ontario; and Eastern Ontario
  • Two Provincial Directors for the Central Ontario Area
    • The Home Board for each shall not be the same Member Board

Members elect Directors-at-Large and Provincial Directors for available positions at the OREA Assembly.

* The President-Elect is elected from among Directors-at-Large and Provincial Directors by the Board of Directors. The President-Elect automatically becomes President in the year immediately following the year of being elected President-Elect.

“As an OREA Director, I love the fact that I’m able to participate in the process of improving the organization’s effectiveness. It’s a very rewarding role which enables me to contribute to improving benefits to our members.”

- Mike Douglas, Broker, Re/Max Chay Realty Inc. Barrie, Ontario
